Susan Carr Art Exhibition
September 24, 2022 @ 10:00 am – October 15, 2022 @ 5:00 pm
An Exhibition Of 15 Paintings At Jamyang Buddisht Centre Leeds
A long time member of the Jamyang Leeds community, being one of the members of its first committee, Susan Carr was an artist, designer, quiltmaker and also a psychotherapist and life coach. She was also a dedicated spiritual practitioner, actively engaged in four separate spiritual traditions (Buddhism, Christianity, Hindu Tantra and Sufism).
Susan suffered throughout her life from depression and anxiety and fought a protracted battle against these, especially in the last two years of her life when she was prescribed high doses of medication to overcome these. Tragically, this went wrong and in August 2018 after a severe depressive episode, she took her own life.
Due to the restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic, this exhibition is the first time much of this work has been on view and is a belated tribute to the life and work of an artist who had so much to give to the world, but sadly succumbed to the blight of mental illness.
